Tomatoes Rotten Tomatoes' gave the film a 53% approval rating and summarizes the critical consensus as: "This teen romance flick feels like a predictable rehashing of other movies." Some of the positive reviews are measured in their enthusiasm, with remarks such as, "Look elsewhere for reality or good drama. Look here, however, if you're in the mood for a good heaping of fantasy and some fun"; "a decent, well-put-together romantic drama to hold hands to on the weekend"; and "A sometimes predictable, but mostly enjoyable tale." Salon's reviewer called the film "a bad, friendly, enjoyable movie," observing that "for all its dumb clichés it offers the basic appeal of teen movies: the pleasure of watching kids be kids, acting as they do among themselves instead of how parents and teachers expect them to act."Ebert Roger Ebert rated it three stars out of four: The setup promises cliches, but the development is intelligent, the characters are more complicated than we expect, and the ending doesn't tie everything up in a predictable way.

Soundtrack

Template:Soundtrack 4The musical score for Comedy Board was composed by David Newman, who also composed the music for the third film and collaborated with Bird on Joe's Apartment and Beavis and Butt-Head Do America. As in previous installments, the score incorporates Lalo Schifrin's themes from the original television series. "Lalo is an amazing jazz writer. You know you can't write a straight-up jazz score for a film like this but you can certainly hint at it here and there," said Newman, explaining the stylistic influence generated by Schifrin's history with the franchise. A soundtrack album was released by Columbia Records and Sony Music Soundtrax on January 4, 1998. All music composed by David Newman.
